New Direct-to-Wi-Fi Display for the AcuRite Atlas™ Weather Station

Direct-to-Wi-Fi Display for the AcuRite Atlas™ Weather Station

We are excited to announce the launch of the new Direct-to-Wi-Fi Display for our highest quality, most durable, and most accurate home weather station, the AcuRite Atlas™. This new display allows you to easily connect to My AcuRite and Weather Underground directly from the display! You’ve asked for it, and we’ve listened! The Direct-to-Wi-Fi Display for the 5-in-1 weather station was well-received by our customers last spring, so we’re excited to now offer the Wi-Fi Display for the Atlas.

Remember, this will only connect the AcuRite Atlas™ to the My AcuRite Weather App. If you have other AcuRite home monitoring sensors reporting to My AcuRite, you’ll still need the AcuRite Access™ to keep those sensors connected and reporting for remote monitoring and weather data collection. Upgrade your AcuRite Atlas™ display today to get your personal weather station online and reporting to join the fun of online weather monitoring tools and remote monitoring through My AcuRite.

Share and Discuss Below!

What’s your weather story? Where is your AcuRite Atlas™ wireless weather station mounted? How do you use your AcuRite weather data? Here’s what people are saying about the Atlas and how customers are enjoying the Wi-Fi display for the 5-in-1; we’d love to hear from you, too!

Kudos to AcuRite for making the Direct-to-WiFi display available during these difficult times! I was bummed when I missed out on beta testing, but now that it's available I'm seriously thinking about upgrading to an Atlas from my 5-in-1 station. I have been a happy 5-in-1 station owner for about four years now, but the UV sensor and integrated lightning detector of the Atlas are really attractive to the "prothusiast" in me. AcuRite's weather instruments represent the best balance between sophistication and accessibility for that person who wants to be an "advanced hobbyist meteorologist." This new Direct-to-WiFi display addresses several "wish list" items that I have with my current 5-in-1 system and display. First, I was pleased to see an integrated battery backup in this new display. My old system lacks a battery backup, so I would lose my settings and weather records when the power went out. The new battery backup also keeps your system up and running so you can monitor wind, lightning, etc when the power is out...which is exactly the time you'd to see the data from your station! Second, automatic firmware updates via WiFi - wonderful. Older systems like mine have impossible-to-upgrade firmware, so they're stuck with certain bugs. AcuRite has recognized this issue and made the important investment in this new feature. Keep up the good work, AcuRite! Looking forward to even more new products in the future!

The Atlas sensor sends data to the display unit every 10-30 seconds. The Weather Underground website and app is also updated at this speed due to RapidFire updates. My AcuRite updates every 5 minutes with the current sensor readings. If you have further questions, please feel free to reach out to our support team via live chat or email request on the AcuRite Support website.

I just bought and installed this new wifi display. It works well and as advertised. However, I have one suggestion... make the wind speed and temperature font bolder. Although this display is the best overall looking and the highest resolution display, it is much harder to read than the two previous AcuRite displays from across a room (distance of greater than 15 feet). Maybe this can be done with a firmware update, then I would give this display a 5 stars.

Yes, the new Atlas Wi-Fi direct display is compatible with all of our Atlas sensors model 06059. Please let us know if you have any other questions, we are happy to help!

How do you get the old sensors to pair with the new display?
AcuRite Team
November 13, 2020 at 10:18 AM
This display unit is only compatible with the Atlas sensor. It is not compatible with older Iris (5-in-1) sensors.

Question: I have both an Atlas and a 5-in-1 station connected through the Acurite Access. Under that combination, I had to pick which one transmitted to Weather Underground. Are you saying that by utilizing the Direct to Wi-Fi with the Atlas, that I could now have BOTH the Atlas and 5-in-1 reporting to Weather Underground simultaneously?
AcuRite Team

Yes! Using the New AcuRite Atlas™ Direct-to-Wi-Fi Display, you can stream your Atlas sensor data online to Weather Underground, then have your Access stream your 5-in-1 sensor data online to Weather Underground.

Is it possible to hook multiple displays to read the Atlas sensor? For example, if I wanted to use 1 (or 2) of these new 6099M Direct-To-Wifi displays at the same time (maybe only one is reporting via WiFi) would that work? What about one 6099M Direct-To-Wifi and one of the older 6061M Atlas HD displays? Also, are you planning a signal extender for the Atlas?
AcuRite Team

Absolutely! Multiple display units are able to receive data from a single sensor, as long as they are compatible. You can either use multiple of the same model of Atlas display units or a combination of the different models of Atlas display units. At this time, we do not have a signal extender for the Atlas Weather Station, however, the new AcuRite Atlas™ Direct-to-Wi-Fi Display does feature improved signal reception! If you have further questions, please reach out to our support team via live chat or email request on the AcuRite Support website.

Does the rainfall accumulate for 24 hours and then after that 24 hours will the "Today" section of the display zero out to 0.00" to begin the next day's rainfall?. If so, what 24 hour period is used, or is it configurable? My HD display drives me crazy because it never shows 24 hour rainfall if there are prior day's rainfall. Overall love my Atlas w/HD display except for this issue and no battery backup.

The new Atlas Direct to Wi-Fi displays Today's Rainfall total at all times and this resets at midnight.

Merhaba Atlas istasyonunu Amazon dan aldım. Türkiye de yaşıyorum. My acurite de lokasyon olarak Türkiye yok. İstasyonu çalışır mı.

Kesinlikle! Lütfen şu anda My AcuRite ve ürünlerinin yalnızca ABD, Kanada, İngiltere ve Avustralya'da desteklendiğini unutmayın. Her zaman işimizi büyütmek istiyoruz. Müşterilerimiz 1 numaralı önceliğimizdir. Sitede gelecekteki olası güncellemeler için bunu kesinlikle aklımızda tutacağız. Ancak, bu yalnızca My AcuRite'ın tahmin özelliğini etkileyecektir. Desteklenmeyen bir ülkede bulunuyorsanız, sensör verilerinizi çevrimiçi olarak yayınlamak için My AcuRite'ı kullanmaya devam edebilirsiniz. Sokak adresinizi yine de girebilirsiniz, ancak yanlış bir ülke seçmeniz gerekecektir. Size en yakın desteklenen ülkeyi seçmenizi tavsiye ederim. Yine, bu yalnızca Karanlık Gökyüzü tahminini ve hava durumu simgelerini etkileyecek, bu özellikler yanlış olacaktır. Sensör verileriniz etkilenmeyecektir.

Was this display discontinued? I cannot find any information about it except for this blog.

The Atlas Direct to Wi-Fi display unit is currently out of stock and is not available for purchase at this time. We hope to have it back in stock soon. We apologize for any inconvenience!

Should the sensor be mounted as high as possible or does that matter? One suggestion for this forum is maybe have the comments sorted by newest to oldest rather than oldest to newest:? Thank you.

The National Weather Service recommends mounting the sensor 33 feet above the ground with no obstructions within 100 feet for the most accurate wind speeds. We understand not all of our customers can mount this high. You should receive an accurate reading for where it is mounted. If you are comparing to a local news station, they typically follow the National Weather Service guidelines. We recommend mounting the sensor at least 5 feet off of the ground and as far away from any obstructions as possible.
